I posted several days ago that we finally made it to the schedule for our pre construction meeting on Wednesday, September 26 and scheduled to break ground TODAY, Tuesday, October 1. Finally, right!?
Well, mother nature has another plan, we will not be breaking ground today or tomorrow because it will be raining both days with a 60% chance of rain each day. Two Lots (52 & 28) were breaking ground this week which is out of the norm, because we only had one PM to handle the building load. We now have an additional PM which allows for our PM to manage breaking ground on two homes per week. LOT #52 was scheduled yesterday and did not break ground and as I mentioned we were scheduled today! Considering all goes well, we will break ground on Thursday or Friday of this week.
So what do we do...WE WAIT--AGAIN!!
On another note: During our pre construction meeting with our PM, we made a few discoveries that have been addressed with the exception of one. I asked our PM about it but he wasn't aware of the sink I described. I explained that I thought we were getting the upgraded sink with the 60/40 split because we ordered the upgraded faucet. It turns out that this was never explained to me in detail so I referred to the selection sheet yesterday and discovered under countertops: upgrade sink #1 and sink #2 for the same price of $450. I have no idea what they are or look like; however, I am clear that I wanted the 60/40 sink. I emailed our original SR and she replied that it was an option and we had time to look over the MSS to select this option and since we did not, we cannot add any other options at this point. I am NOT happy about this because I know I brought it up in our meetings, but we had so much going on that it became an oversight along with the other discoveries during our pre construction meeting such as the color of our granite countertop, the placement of our double patio doors in the basement and the soap and towel bars in the bathrooms. So I sent another email requesting for the sink to be added to the last change order that we are still waiting for with the other missing items we discovered. I have not heard anything as of this moment; but I am certainly hoping it can be done because I cannot imagine not having the sink I want in my dream kitchen that I spent time creating over the past several months.
